Johannesburg – A woman, who had been shot by the infamous Stander gang 24 years ago, died in her home during a robbery when she and her husband were attacked by three armed men.

Marlene Henn, 65, was shot in the chest in the Stander robbery and also in the one at the weekend.

Captain Julia Claassen said Henn was fatally wounded when the robbers fired shots in her Randburg home.

Henn’s husband, Mike, was assaulted with a firearm.

It is still not known how the men gained access to the stand and the house about 22:10 on Friday.

After Henn had been shot in the chest and her husband tied up and hit over the head, the thugs took the keys of the couple’s 4×4 vehicle.

Stander gang robbery

They accidentally pressed the panic button on the remote control, alerting an armed-reaction unit.

Claassen said the robbers fled when security guards arrived.

Henn was wounded in the chest when she was shot several times in November 1983 during a robbery done by the Stander gang under leadership of former police officer André Stander.

Henn, then 41, was robbed in her firearm shop in Randburg by Stander, Alan Heyl and Patrick McCall.

In 2002, she said in an interview that she did not believe Stander had been shot dead in the US, but that he was still alive and doing “underhanded things”.

Bullet passes through mom, girl

Pretoria – When robbers broke into their house and fired a shot at a mother and daughter the bullet went through both – but the mom didn’t realise it until later when she saw lots of blood.

When the robbers broke into their home in Rooihuiskraal, Centurion, the woman tried to hide her daughter, but they were shot. Her unborn son was unharmed.

Thirty-year-old Cliëster Stanley, who is seven months pregnant, was shot in her left breast.

The same bullet that hit her, went into the chest of her three-year-old daughter, Dannica, broke a rib, and hit her right lung before coming out through her shoulder.

The family was held up by four armed robbers for nearly two hours while they ransacked the house.

Ran in and fired a shot

Dannica is being treated in the intensive-care unit of Unitas Hospital in Centurion.

She began breathing by herself on Sunday afternoon, after having been on a ventilator since Saturday.

Cliëster’s husband, Jason, 29, was lying on the floor powerless, with his hands and feet tied behind his back during the robbery.

“There was nothing that I could do. I was tied up,” he said on Sunday.

According to Jason, the robbers bent open the burglar bars outside their dining room window about 01:00 and climbed through the window.

“They ran into our bedroom, switched on the light and fired a shot.”

“I jumped up, but the robbers tackled me on to the bed so that I was lying on my stomach and then they tied up my hands and feet,” he said.

Cliëster said it had been like a dream for her at first.

“I have had dreams about people breaking into our house.”

Dannica, who had crawled into her parents’ bed in the night, began crying loudly.

Cliëster said: “When they grabbed Jason, I thought they wanted to grab my baby and I grabbed her and pushed her under my left side to hide her.

“They fired again, but I didn’t realise that Dannica and I had been hit.”

Repeatedly hit her husband

“It was only some time later that I got a burning feeling in my chest and then I saw the blood.”

She said the robbers had talked softly and kept saying that the family should not look at them. They also told Cliëster to shush Dannica.

They also repeatedly hit Jason on his hands and feet.

The robbers stole various electrical appliances, cellphones, wallets, jewellery and shoes.

They put everything in the Stanley’s silver Nissan Hardbody (registration number VKB 060 GP).

“Jason undressed Dannica to get rid of the bloody clothes, but still did not see that she had been shot.

“Only once he picked her up, did he see the bullet wound in her shoulder,” said Cliëster.

Oorleef Stander-skote; nie huisrooftog

’n Vrou van 65 wat 24 jaar gelede deur lede van die berugte André Stander-bende gewond is, het Vrydag in ’n rooftog gesterf toe sy en haar man deur drie gewapende mans in hul huis in Randburg oorval is.

Sy is in albei rooftogte in die bors geskiet, maar dié keer was dit noodlottig.

Volgens kapt. Julia Claassen, polisiewoordvoerder, is mev. Marlene Henn noodlottig getref toe die aanvallers skote in die huis afgevuur het. Haar man, mnr. Mike Henn, is met ’n vuurwapen aangerand.

Dit is onbekend hoe die mans omstreeks 22:10 toegang tot die erf en huis gekry het.

Nadat Henn in die bors geskiet is en haar man vasgebind en oor die kop geslaan is, het die aanvallers die sleutels van die paartjie se motor gevat.

In die proses het hulle per ongeluk die paniekknoppie op die afstandbeheer gedruk en onwetend ’n gewapende reaksie-eenheid ontbied.

Claassen het gesê die boewe het gevlug toe die veiligheidswagte hul opwagting maak.

Hulle het weggejaag in ’n silwerkleurige Mazda Etude met ’n Gautengse registrasienommer wat met die letters PVZ begin.

Die misdadigers is nog op vrye voet en klagte van moord en huisroof word deur die Randburgse polisie ondersoek.

Volgens mnr. Nick Dollman, woordvoerder van Netcare 911, het Henn op die toneel aan die wond in haar bors gesterf. Mnr. Henn is na ’n plaaslike hospitaal geneem. Hy is reeds ontslaan.

Mev. Henn is in November 1983 ook in die bors gewond toe sy verskeie kere geskiet is tydens ’n rooftog van die Stander-bende, onder leiding van die oud-polisieman André Stander. Sy was toe 41 jaar oud.

Beeld het destyds berig hoe Stander, Alan Heyl en Patrick McCall haar vuurwapenwinkel, Pot Shot Arms, in Randburg beroof het. Terwyl Henn bloeiend op die vloer gelê het, is ses vuurwapens en 2 000 rondes ammunisie gesteel.

Haar seun, Jaco, het gister gesê daar is “net te veel geskiedenis” en die familie wil nie oor die voorval praat nie.

Die familie besit steeds die wapenwinkel, maar die onderneming se naam is nou Kolskoot Potshot.

Rowers vermoor man in huis waar hy 50 j. woon

Posted in Uncategorized on 31 March, 2008 by rudiprinsloo

Mnr. Johnny Johnson (85)

Mar 30 2008 09:47:35:067PM – (SA)

Nicolize van der Walt

Klerksdorp. – In dieselfde huis waar hy sy kinders grootgemaak en byna 50 jaar van sy lewe deurgebring het, is mnr. Albert Edward Johnson (85) koelbloedig vermoor.

Johnson, ’n afgetrede myner beter bekend as Johnny, is Vrydagaand in sy huis in Poppylaan, Adamayview, vermoedelik met ’n stomp voorwerp oor die kop geslaan. Sy lyk is Saterdag gekry.

Sy een seun het hom oudergewoonte Vrydagaand geskakel en bekommerd geraak toe Johnson nie sy telefoon antwoord nie, maar hy het aangeneem sy pa kuier by vriende.

Die moordenaars het Vrydagaand vermoedelik tussen 18:00 en 22:00 die slaapkamervenster gebreek om in die huis te kom.

“Ons vermoed my pa was in die sitkamer en het gaan ondersoek instel. Hulle het my pa, wat redelik swak sig gehad het, in die gang oorrompel. Hulle het alles omgegooi en al die kaste deurgesoek,” het mnr. Guy Johnson, een van sy ander seuns, gesê.

Kapt. Adelé Myburgh, provinsiale polisiewoordvoerder, het gesê die rowers het daarna met Johnny Johnson se Nissan 1400-bakkie gevlug. Die bakkie is later verlate gevind.

“Ek is geskok, kwaad, hartseer… Hier is te veel haat in die land. Suid-Afrika het so baie potensiaal, maar ek voel die regering is uit voeling met hul mense,’’ het Guy Johnson gesê.

Hy het bygevoeg hy sal sy pa altyd onthou “vir die goeie waardes wat hy ons geleer het”.

Benewens Guy word Johnny Johnson oorleef deur nog twee seuns, Ian en Lindsay, en ’n dogter Jennifer, ses kleinkinders en ’n agterkleinkind.
